During a recent trip to India, we
witnessed a tremendous amount of suffering and our sensitive
consciences continued to ask, “What can we do about
it?”. After meeting a local environmentalist, we made a
pledge to raise $10,000 to support an initiative that
uses surf and stand up paddle to create ecological and
social change in Orissa, India. For more project
here. We are excited to be
a part of this initiative and we hope that you are too!

Sunday, February 10 at 7:30pm.
While traveling to India as part of a graduate studies
course, Chris Miller’s heart was opened to the widespread
suffering that he witnessed throughout the country. After
meeting several humanitarian and ecological activists in
India, including Sanjay Samantaray, Chris saw an opportunity
to become involved in the alleviation of some part of this
suffering and decided to found Surfing Yogis USA, a US
501(c)3 non-profit committed to this end.
Chris is a certified public accountant, holding a bachelor’s
degree in accounting from Loyola Marymount University where
he is also currently a candidate for a master’s degree in
comparative theology. While taking study breaks, he enjoys
surfing, cycling and practicing yoga and meditation to keep
it all in balance.
